Synergy? Silos?

What year would the most important in your life? Why?

2018. My wife and I welcomed our first child, and I started this new position as director of our downtown organization.

(Complete this sentence) The one thing that I think is missing from local government is….

Operating from a place of abundance rather than scarcity

What’s your area of expertise? This is not necessarily just your department, but something about local government work that you love learning about, implementing, and talking through with others:
